Financial Literacy Class on Smart Planning, Scams, Set Tuesday in Wheeling

HHOMA Financial Literacy Class in Wheeling to focus on smart planning, scams and underbanked obstacles

Free class open to the public April 23 in Wheeling

CHARLESTON, WV — The Herbert Henderson Office of Minority Affairs has partnered with WV Legal Aid’s Financial Exploitation Division to offer a financial literacy class to community members in Wheeling.

The free class will take place on Tuesday, April 23, 6 p.m., at the WV Northern Community College B & O Building, 1704 Market Street, Room 316-B, Wheeling. The class focuses on money scams, smart planning and handling banked/underbanked obstacles. Unbanked/underbanked households rely on cash and have little or no access to checking or savings accounts, credit cards or other traditional financial services.

“Access to mainstream banking services is a problem that many people of moderate to low income face,” said Jill Upson, executive director of HHOMA. “A financial literacy class is the perfect opportunity to help people expand their knowledge in ways to protect themselves and make wise financial decisions.”

The financial literacy class is free and open to the public. Dinner and refreshments are provided. To reserve a seat, call HHOMA at 304-356-2023 or email HHOMA@
